    Yes, the people with myopia have a higher risk of glaucoma. I think you can improve your eyesight by keeping a healthy diet to provide your eyes with enough nutrients. You can do eye exercise regularly to relax your eyes especially when you need to work in front of a computer for a long time. You can have regular eye exams to prevent the disease from happening.
